On the Market: Newer Bi-Level Condo in South Kensington
Everything about this place still sparkles three years out. It has plenty of space, plenty of light, all the modern touches and a convenient location.
Here’s one of those new construction rowhouses that play nice with their neighbors. It’s actually a pair of two-unit condos just above Girard Avenue on Mascher Street in South Kensington.
This bi-level condo for sale occupies the basement and first floor of the rowhouse on the right above. It’s roomy, stylish, nicely outfitted, and above all, convenient to some of the hottest places in town.
Sparkling hardwood floors and energy-efficient LED lighting grace every room in this house.
Its open-plan main living area offers plenty of room for both relaxing and entertaining.
The kitchen features contemporary cabinetry, up-to-date stainless steel appliances, and an island with bar seating wrapped in distressed wood.
The master bedroom in the rear of the main floor boasts a huge walk-in closet and an equally spacious tile-floored master bath. You’ll find a second bedroom and another full bath downstairs.
In back, a roomy and attractive patio with stone paving, a planter bed and tree makes a great place to relax and dine in good weather.
If you have a car, you’ll find you won’t need it here. Go down to Girard Avenue, turn left, and walk a half block, and you’ll find a shopping center with a large Acme supermarket, a Fine Wine & Good Spirits store, a Family Dollar and several other retailers. Turn right at Girard and you’re at Girard station on the Market-Frankford Line in seconds. Walk a little further past the El station and you’ll be at the gateway to the Frankford Avenue dining, shopping and entertainment district in Fishtown. Turn up Front Street instead and more great eateries and drinkeries beckon. And on the other side of that shopping center lies the Piazza, ringed with shops and restaurants and filled with activities throughout the year. How convenient is that? Ditch your job in the ‘burbs and you can even ditch the car completely.
